    I have my 3 computers pointed to pfsense, and i can access the WEBGUI but  the internet isn't working. my modem is 192.168.0.1. Is there a specially way to setup pfsense? I know the IP Address changes everytime you connect. Can someone help me?  Thnxs



  • pfSense uses per default the same IPrange as this modem on it's LAN.
    Change the IPrange of your LAN to something else (172.16.0.1/24?) and it should work.



  • Thanks it works now. Thanks you so much. I have another problem. I'll try to describe it as much as possible. How can I access my web interface of the modem from any of my computers to connect the modem sense its dail-up? without disconnecting it from the WAN port of the pfsense boxs? cause the LAN side and the Wan side have 2 different IP address. is there a way to access it even thou there 2 different IP address? thanks for your help



  • Can you please rephrase that?
    What do you want to access?
    From where do you want to access it?
    What is the problem right now?



  • I'll try my best to explain it. I have a dail-up modem for my network. In order for me to connect to the internet on it I have to use my web broswer to access it to connected it. Sense I got the internet up from my PFSENSE box's I can't access my modem WEBGUI on the LAN side to connect to the internet? u know what i mean? i can't access my modem from the LAN side  which the modem  is on the WAN side? u understand? thanks for your help..



  • So in a diagram:

    internet
                    ¦
                    ¦
                    ¦
                (WAN) - public IP
              modem
                (LAN) - 192.168.0.1
                    ¦
                    ¦
                    ¦
                (WAN) - 192.168.0.2/24
              pfSense
                (LAN) - 172.16.0.1/24
                    ¦
                    ¦
                clients

    You want to access the modem on 192.168.0.1.
    You should just be able to type this IP in the webbrowser and it should work.
